Prim Whim: Key Largo

I watched Key Largo last week. It's a 1948 film noir filled with mysterious mobsters and a big storm a-brewing. What really caught my eye, of course, were the sultry leads, Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart, who were married in real life and smoldered on screen, without, mind you, one costume change.

Bacall is amazingly elegant as Nora Temple in a simple white shirt, dirndle skirt and espadrilles. I'm completely taken with her classic style and put together a Nora-inspired look.

Linen shirt: $24.50, Old Navy
Tie skirt: $40, Alloy
Gold espadrilles: $50, Jildor Shoes
Leather and rope belt: $7, Forever21
Revlon Colorstay Red Velvet lipstick: $10, drugstore.com

  1. LB is one of my style heroes! I love and try to copy her suits from The Big Sleep (pencil skirts, berets, tweed... how'd she look so hot in tweed?). Leah Rhodes was the costume designer for both movies, according to IMDB.
